Dear Mr. Ader:

Thank you for submitting your Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to
the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) via email to
foia@nara.gov. We received your request on September 23, 2022. Your
request concerns All records mentioning Roy Oliver Disney (June 24, 1893 –
December 20, 1971) - the brother of famed Walt Disney and a co-founder of
The Walt Disney Company.

Our office handles FOIA and Privacy Act requests for NARA’s operational records
(records created by this agency). Because your FOIA request is for
records that may be archival records (records created by or originated in a
different agency but that may have been transferred to the legal custody of
NARA), we are forwarding it by this email to our Office of Research
Services, Textual Reference (RR2RR) staff who handle FOIA requests for
textual archival records.

That office will assign your request a tracking number and respond directly
to you. In the future, if you need to follow up with that office directly,
please contact them at the address below, or electronically via email
(email is preferred).

about making a FOIA request to NARA. On our main website,

can learn more about the resources we offer to the public, and you can
access our online catalog.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and pursuant to guidance received from the
Office of Management and Budget (OMB), NARA had adjusted its normal
operations to balance the need of completing its mission-critical work
while also adhering to the recommended social distancing for the safety of
our staff. As a result of this re-prioritization of activities, you may
experience a delay in receiving a substantive response to your FOIA
request. We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your
understanding and patience.

We are also referring your request to our Special Access and FOIA office
(copied here) for a search of our FBI files. They will respond separately.

We searched the Department of Justice General Index to Litigation Case

110-A) and the Internal Security Index, 1930 - 1979

General Records of the Department of Justice for Roy Disney. We did not
locate any records responsive to your request.

We do not consider this a denial of your FOIA request. However, if you are
not satisfied with our action on this request, your options for appeal and
